What if you could update your Facebook and Twitter status without being too obvious? You know who you are! Italian denim brand Replay Jeans will release their Social Denim for men and women—in skinny and baby boot cut fits—for the masses in December. Using Bluetooth technology, the wearer simply clicks on a button to update various mood choices without having to look down. Sly! We think the jeans look pretty good, but we’re not so sure about the device hanging in front of the coin pocket. Would you wear this?

1. Tangerine tango is the freshest color of the new year (according to Pantone, at least) and Dylan George‘s mid-rise skinny jeans are way ahead of the 2012 curve with their Keira style in coated mango.
2. As a face of DKNY Jeans, Ashley Greene unveiled her simple, pared-down spring 2012 ad in Times Square. It’s hard to get any bigger than that!
3. Take a moment to forgive yourself for the sins of denim outfits past. Then watch this 1987 JC Penney Fashion Flash video and LOL at the “pulled-together denim looks” without a hint of guilt.
4. In eco-friendly denim news, Replay Jeans now replicates the look of worn-in, vintage jeans with a “Laser Wash” that utilizes no water and no sandblasting. Instead, they’re using ozone washing machines. How high-tech–and downright cool–does that sound?
5. Norwegian label Anti Denim has teamed up with heavy metal band 1349 for a new collection of limited edition, custom-made jeans that are made to rock out in.

We love Replay for consistently offering a wide range of casual denim standbys: shirts, jackets, jeans, and more. Thankfully, their mid-range men’s line, Maestro, is no different. The Italian label’s spring/summer 2012 collection is filled with relaxed, slouchy jeans that pair perfectly with classic plaid shirts, faded graphic tees, and even light-wash denim shirts. Nothing’s too constricting or confining, which makes for the best for comfortable weekend wear!

Looking back at pictures from our childhood we often think, “How did I EVER wear that?”—Like it or not, our past is back to haunt us as ‘90s fashion makes itself very much part of the present. One trend in particular, denim overalls, is popping up in some form or another in all the brands we love to shop. So the question cannot be avoided: will we wear them again? The answer is easier to arrive at than you thought, now that our options have expanded from the OshKosh standard to color-blocked, acid-washed, super-short, and other styles of this infamous one piece. Our answer? Yes! If you’re short on cash, don’t fret: there are plenty of affordable denim overalls too. Ready to rock this trend? Scroll down and see which pair of overalls is right for you!
